…KO Oversized DX9 War In Pocket Tyrant - Mech Fans Toys MF-07 Galvontron ( a.k.a. Galvatron )

Finally here... Costs approximately SGD 16.25... Sadly, seller packs this with a free gift which makes my shipping (volumetric) weight almost twice the size and hence twice the shipping fee... Height is approximately 12 cm from bottom of feet to tip of head's crown... For me, I don't really care about its size as I just wanted a small and good G1-looking Galvatron which can transform into a cannon (NOT tank) to put in my display shelf...


Box front and back...



Detombed... hahaha....


"Galvontron" in robot mode... looks like the KO maker added new hip side-skirts...


Anyeway, this is quite a nice figure to accompany the Meng Ba Di oversized legends TFs that were released earlier...


The matrix that comes with it is a very nice touch... Looks good!!!!


... Cannon mode... notice the tank treads piece has been remolded to let the treads go round the whole piece... looks better than the original design, in my opinion...

Mech Fans Toys MF-17 Hercules a.k.a. KO DX9 Hulkie a.k.a. Not-Devastator

Hulkie!!! KO Hulkie!!!! What a cute little Devastator... Though it is still not my smallest Devastator... This is the KO version, which I paid for about SGD 45.20... A bit expensive, but when compare to the legit DX9 version, this is considered cheap...


Super hilarious bio!!!! Hahahahahaha...


Here's KO Hulkie de-tombed... looks nice... I am prepared to tighten up the loose joints at the legs and shoulders... with my trusty superglue, hahahaha... Done!!!!


Hulkie !!!!!! Hahahaha.... He is so cute, even at this relatively large size (only slightly smaller than G1 version)...



And these are all my Devastators... 1 big happy family... hahahaha...



Here's the transformation for individual bots...

And final combination to become... Hulkie!!!!! Hahahaha...

战将 Zhan Jiang M01 战师 Mechinic Master a.k.a. KO Oversized Generation Toy Tyrant a.k.a. Not-Megatron

Gotten this a few days ago... As usual (for a KO), many parts has to be trimmed and joints tightened... Cost about SGD39.05... But is a very very nice G1 Megatron representation...


Megatron de-tombed... Comes with 2 purple sword and a mace, which my Megatron cannot hold now with his new replaced hands... Also comes with a new translucent eye piece which I since changed, and a new silver barrel tip which will make Megatron look more like the G1 cartoon version in robot mode...


Yes, my Megatron comes with 2 right hands... sigh... luckily found my old Jinbao Leo Dux hands stuck deep in a spare parts box, and decided to use them...


Fists are cut off and sanded down...



Pins of the original hands are attached to the Jinbao Leo Dux hands using superglue...


The top and bottom of the new fists need to be trimmed to fit them into the cavity...



Since the new hands go into the cavity completely, the gun mode is not affected at all. Also loosen his left shoulder screw to allow the arm to rotate... All other joints are trimmed or tightened to a acceptable level..



I felt this is a better sized gun to hold in hand, compared to Apollyon... Not to mention it is so much easier to transform...


Comparison with X-Transbots Apollyon...


And comparison with G1 Megatron, cos he's precious.... G1-Megatron-precious...



Here's the transformation video:

KO Oversized Warbotron Rex - Transformations Points Sharing

Wanted to share with fellow KO kollectors on these following points for this KO Oversized Warbotron Rex, which some reviews of this figure may have accidentally missed out :

(1) Crown can fit onto robot head snugly by tabbing in the small peg to the screw hole (back of head) first.

(2) Dino knee-thigh pieces should be extended ( and thus likely the robot elbows retracted in ), if according to the box front artwork and/or the G1 toy.

(3) Chromed tail pieces can slide up to lock in place in dino mode.

Personally I like this figure very much as a nice representative of the Grimlock character.
